Brunswick County Gator Senior Games were Thursday and Friday at Town Creek Park.

The program in now in its 20th year. Last week’s competition had 230 participants.

“Probably we’ve been in the 190s for the last six years,” Brunswick County senior programs coordinator Khrystye Haselden said. “So this is a record for us. We’ve not gotten over 200 participants, so to have 230 is a wonderful blessing. It means more people are leading healthy, happy lives.”
